Foxy@OC'D, wow that is a really nice OC! Did you ever try overclocking this specific processor on air? If so how far were you able to take it?

PS think3r, Avatar changed lol sorry hondaguy had to go back to T.A. lolz
PaperKuts, great looking temperatures. 29C is pretty low for idle...what is your room ambient temperature? Full load temperature also looks great. By the way thank you for editing your avatar

Good luck

Hm CPU-Z says im running 4 cores.. weird haha Im running prime95 and now i can see the 4 cores random

thanks for all the help!

thanks thlnk3r, and sadly I havent had any chance to use air cooling might have to make an investment in an air cooler give it a go.

I'll have another go at overclocking it a bit more later on.

Looking to push further on the clock now. Ran OCCT. Apparently 1.5v isn't enough to stabilise a 4.0Ghz clock on my 550BE. Bumped it upto 1.55v and its fully stable.

4.0Ghz w/ 1.55v

Idle @ 22.C
Load @ 35.C

Trying for 4.1Ghz now. Though i think 4 is either the chip or boards limit to have stable. When i had air cooling i could boot in @ 4.2Ghz and run lots of apps fine, but wasn't stable. Will see though.

Hey, my room temp is pretty low most of the time I'd say around 60°F-70°F, its pretty cold round here and I always keep my window open for the breeze, which there is plenty of on Shetland lol, under full load it was sitting around the low 50°C's after an hour of Prime95, my case airflow is epic fail tho, when I get my system built into the Xigmatek Midguard am hoping to see much improvement.


Cheers

I tried it with a bios of f5 now i have f7.I was running my cpu at 3.6 not my memory.I have Gskill memory .When i boot my system up it say unganged 1066.I boasted the memory voltage a little.I tried to unlock the other cores with the older bios but it wont even boot on ...the tech a gig told me to update my bios and it still didnt work .The system dosent come on the fan sound really weird on my cpu and nothing happens,

Rawz, wow great job for a stable 4Ghz? I'm assuming stability testing was done via Prime95? Very nicely done!

BlackArmada, it's quite possible the other two cores are faulty. Does everything run great with just two cores (dual-core)? Try lowering your memory divider and take it off of DDR2-1066 and try DDR2-800. Would it be possible for you to add your system specifications to your signature? You can do this by going here: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php?do=addsystem.

Good luck

Well, looks like my happy X4 B50 fantasy is coming to an end.

Works fine in desktop apps but completely unstable in games. The weird part is that when it crashes in a game, my screen shows some sort of weird refresh rate, like 89Mhz by 120Mhz. Who the heck knows what that means?

Oh well. It's cool, but a disappointment nonetheless.

Seems like for gaming, 3.6 is the most stable. 3.7 is ok but a bit hinky and 3.8 is just beggin for a BSOD. 3.8 is fine for desktop stuff though.

One thing I noticed, BTW, whereas my X4 unlocking really rocked at first, as time went by it just got funkier by the day. I guess they really did lock those cores for a reason. Almost tempted to just say screw it and get a 955. $90 more and no tweaks.

Mitchellvii, what overclock were stable with in terms of stress testing with Prime95/OCCT ect? That should be the OC to stick with in my opinion. Are you sure the stability issues in games aren't related to your video card or perhaps possibly even the drivers? Just to clarify you haven't overclocked your video card at all have you?

Your last statement though sounds interesting. Maybe perhaps you actually do have a faulty quad-core

Good luck buddy
